And Just Look At That Shine

This issue of Sojourners marks a significant breakthrough in paper technology. As you can see, we have changed over to a shinier, more readable stock that is far superior to our old paper, which we think was made from landfill, or possibly medical waste from New Jersey.

Our new paper stock is both recycled and bleach free (it never needs ironing), and is probably more environmentally responsible than Ralph Nader. Speaking of Ralph Nader, I once rode on an airplane with him and was so much in awe of the man that I didn’t even ask him for his peanuts, even though they just sat there unopened on his tray table. And I was really hungry because I thought it was a "dinner flight," but it was really one of those "snack flights."

Actually, seeing Nader was no big deal for me, since I frequently rub elbows with important people in Washington, D.C. Ted Kennedy once walked right past me at the Capitol when I was standing at the water fountain. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to give him advice on any important issues, even if he had noticed me, which he didn’t. Ihad to get back outside to the demonstration. (Something about nuclear weapons, I think, which we were against.)

But getting back to our new paper: we’re pretty proud of it. This innovative new paper stock was developed through the collaboration of two of this century’s most powerful forces: high technology and nagging, whiny-voiced environmentalists. The paper is recycled, it’s produced with almost no pollutants, and it contains 10 percent real fruit juice.

We hope it will enhance your enjoyment of each issue of Sojourners, particularly page 50.
